Scarlett Johansson is the latest star to receive an invitation to a Marine ball, but unlike Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, Scarlett had to decline.
In a recent YouTube video, Sgt. Dustin L. Williams asked Scarlett to be his date for the November 10th event, but Scarlett said no, and sent him some champagne instead. “I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams," Scarlett said in a statement. "Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation.”
Now that's cool. I love all of these celebrities honoring our military! And special shout-out to my brother in-law who's serving with the USMC in North Carolina!

If you ever get a chance to see Milwaukee from the water...do it! I don't know what it is about the water but everything looks beautiful when you're on the water. I took these over the weekend and just looking at them calms me. We have a beautiful city enjoy it and enjoy what's left of summer:)
